    Understanding maketh nature and how Kant lead to absolutism kaise likha

    Copernican revolution->reason must not approach object as pupil but judge--->reconciled rationalists and empiricists--->metaphysics to epistemology shift

    hume skepticism se waken up--->first sensibility through apriori percepts (space and time)---> then understanding (12 apriori categories)--->then still reason tries to find ideas beyond phenomena--noumena (things in themselves)--->3 ideas:
    about soul-->parologism of reason
    world-->antinomies
    god-->ideal of pure reason

    kant concludes-->knowledge about phenomena possible through synthetic judgment apriori but about noumena-->unknown and unknowable. They regulate knowledge but do not constitute it

    phir hegel ke entry-absolute idealism->dialectical process->triad-->characteristics etc karte hue

    conclusion mein existentialist criticize hegel ka essence...etc

  • How family resemblance help establish language is a game?
  • Platotle said:

    How family resemblance help establish language is a game?

    family resemblance means some rules which are common in all games but it does not mean all rules are common... to understand all rules one has to play that game but common rules help him initially
    Similarly in language some rules are common eg grammar which help a person initially and also brought objectivity to some level
    but these rules belong to family resemblance and not essence or universal
    so one has to play language games to understand the proper use of words
